For the fourth time in a row, a salmon producer has topped the sustainability rankings of the world's 60 largest publicly traded protein producers in ten environmental, social, and governance topics. Mowi is the top-ranked company, but it is not alone. Six other salmon companies join it in the top 10.

It is followed by Grieg Seafood in second place, Lerøy Seafood in fourth, Salmones Camanchaca in sixth place, and Bakkafrost, Multi X, and SalMar in eighth, ninth and tenth places respectively. See the complete ranking here.

The FAIRR report showed that aquaculture has the trend to have the highest improvement on a year-on-year basis, showing the sector's collective focus to improve sustainability in all parts of the value chain. It also focused that aquaculture companies perform better than other animal protein producers, particularly in the risk factors of biodiversity, antibiotics, and deforestation.
